oh, and i've been noticing from talking to people that there was some misconception regarding where i moved to. everyone knows i moved from phoenix, that's easy enough. as far as where i've moved TO, i've been hearing seattle, british columbia, oregon... so, to clear it all up, once and for all...

*deeeeep breath*

i moved to vancouver, washington, which i know sounds like its just south of the canadian border, much like kansas city, kansas, is right across the river from kansas city, missouri. but it's actually a suburb of portland, oregon, on the complete other side of the state as the canadian border. so, when you hear anything about portland, that is me, more or less. not seattle. i grew up in this area (well, 45 min north of here), and have only been to seattle once in my entire life, when i was 15. my mommy gave me $5 to spend. i changed busses a lot in seattle, when i was going to job corps up about 5 miles south of canada, but it was north of spokane that i was going to school. when i go to clubs and events, i drive across the columbia river (which is, i think approx. less than 2 miles from my front door) to oregon to go to portland :)

*another deep breath*

any questions?

If a train leaves Chicago on a Tuesday at 8am, heading West, eventually levelling off at a sustained speed of 92mph, and another train, this one Eastbound, leaves Portland, OR, on Wednesday at 7pm eventually reaching a speed of 76mph, which train is more likely to be patronized by mostly white conservatives with conservationist leanings?

What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

lol I love it. I have to tell people we are from the Portland Metro area. Then if they start asking more in-depth questions, I say Vancouver.
You know, for people not knowing about Vancouver, WA, why is Clark County growing so fast?

they all accidentally ended up here when they were trying to find BC.

*shudders*

our school system is better than Portlands, thats a big reason right now for people to be moving over here.

Re:
if i let myself REALLY think about it, yes. i miss the palm trees and the constantly blue skies. i miss the smell of the air (always dusty). i miss the friends i left behind.

i definitely do not miss the social bull shit.

Amusingly enough I figured out where you were the other day while watching Judge Judy. There was a youngish guy and girl on there fighting over a dog and he kept trying to explain to the judge that Vancouver and Portland were basically the same thing. The judge wasn't have any of it and kept calling him an idiot.
Maybe he should have pulled out a map for Judge Judy!

I once saw a woman in a shirt that said:
Vancouver not BC
Washington not DC

Tom's family STILL thinks we live near Seattle. You know, cuz Seattle is the only city in Washington.
